Norifumi "Kid" Yamamoto, who has fought for the UFC, K-1, Shooto and Dream, was in a Tokyo subway when he spotted an injured man on the tracks. Yahoo! Japan is reporting his actions saved the man's life.

Yamamoto jumped onto the tracks when he saw the injured man, who was bleeding heavily from his forehead. He tried to lift him off, but couldn't do it on his own. Yamamoto convinced bystanders to help him. Together, they moved him off the tracks to safety before the next train came along. The injured man is now in stable condition at an area hospital.

After an impressive career in Japan, Yamamoto lost three straight fights in the UFC. His last bout was a submission loss to Vaughan Lee at UFC 144 in February.
